It's not much different other than that it now has daily news updates and great editorial content. Otherwise, the vibe is the same and the design hasn't changed that much (or has it and I've just gotten too used to it?). But yeah, it's better.
I bought my PS3 for MGS4, Ratchet & Clank Future and Blu-Ray. I bought my Wii for Nintendo franchises. I bought my 360 (which eventually broke and I didn't care to replace, prompting me to buy a PS3) to own a console from this generation, although probably for Halo.
